Rated 3 out of 5 by TKnTexas Frustrated customer
Many years ago, this was my go-to knit top and my closet was full of them in every color available. They were roomy and oh-so comfortable. The ones I've ordered in the last couple years have all been tighter in the sleeves and when I lay out the new ones over the old ones, I see the why I loved the old ones so much -- they are about 3 inches fuller through the tummy and hip area. Given the updated specs on garment fit and that I'm closing in on mid-60s with a noticeable tummy pooch now, pulling on one of these shirts today screams "I'm getting older and fatter!" I'm willing to bite the bullet and part with these many shirts hanging in my closet and order the next size up for better comfort and more attractive fit. I could have an endless budget and wouldn't matter, because every time--and I mean EVERY TIME!--I log in to purchase more, every decent or appealing color in my size it "X"ed out. UGH! Why?! I don't understand why there is never any inventory from which to choose. PLEASE, PLEASE catch up and stock some inventory LL Bean! I want to stay a loyal customer, but that's pretty hard when there's nothing to buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cinnaminson Love the fit!
I love the fit, color and comfort of this Three-Quater Sleeve V-Neck Tee. I will be ordering more in additional colors.

Slimmer, longer, fabric wrinkled out of dryer. Once a frequent shopper, now seldom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MusicGirl68 Nice shirt
Weight of the fabric is great, not too thin. Nice V-neck, not too low-cut. This is a great shirt for cooler summer weather, with the 3/4-sleeves. The sleeves do fit fairly snugly around my forearms, but they're not "too" tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SmokeyBear1652 Excellent
V-Neck 3/4 Sleeve Tee is an excellent fit. I purchased an XL since I like my shirts slightly big, (do not like shirts to cling to body just too uncomfortable). I like comfort and this shirt gives it 100%. The shirt length is just right, falls below my hips and keeps its shape from sitting to standing and shows no wrinkles. V-Neck is very appealing and falls just above the cleavage area, so i'm not concerned when I bend over. Sleeves fit nicely, not too tight. Washes well in cold water, does not shrink or fade. I loved this shirt so much I purchased almost every color. Great buy. Highly recommend this shirt. Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by georgiabyte Great top, but frustrated...
I have worn the Bean's Tee for years in the short sleeved crew neck. I love the weight of it and the look of it.
Just received two of these, one in white, one in cream. I was happy to see that they fit about the same as the Bean's Tee. And they feel great! But I am frustrated by the limited choice of colors. The Pima tees have all the variety; why not offer that same great variety in the Bean's Tee 3/4 sleeve??? I would applaud this, and I'm sure many others would as well.
This is the only reason I am giving only 4 stars instead of 5.

These tees are the very best - anywhere! Better, in my opinion, than the pima cotton tees. The pima tees have a weird collar band. This one has a beautiful flat, smooth collar that looks more expensive and refined. People always stop and ask me where I got them. The cotton is smooth and not sheer at all. Perfect.
However, the style I love and have depended on for years is the sleeveless tee! They are gone! Please, please Bean, bring it back!
(Maybe you have some stashed in a warehouse somewhere that I could pay you double for??)
Thankfully, I did buy quite a few, but they are getting older now. I'm really desperate. I wear these almost daily alone and under jackets and sweaters. I guess I'll have to buy the pimas, but they also shrink more than the bean tees.
I'm not gonna be happy. Ugh!
Please help a girl, LLBean!
Thanks for listening . . . Hopefully ; )

Rated 2 out of 5 by AZbookseller Great colors but...
I loved these shirts when I first bought them. The colors were bright and vibrant and the feel was very soft. However, each time I washed them they shrunk a little bit more so that I finally had to return them.

Have been purchasing these tees forever - just thought they were the best UNTIL this summer - what happened?? Way too long. Please bring back in the proper length and I will purchase my usual three new ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ktwofish Shrinks but that's OK by me!
I purchased the short-sleeve version of this t-shirt at the same time. Both are in white. This tee has a substantial weight which is good for a white t-shirt. After reading the reviews I ordered a size large. After washing and drying, it fits perfect. I'm short and busty, 5'3" 148 lbs. 38C. When I received the tee, it was a little large around the middle. I washed and dried and hoped it would shrink...and it did. If you are tall or want a long t-shirt, the regular is probably not a good choice for you. All in all, I'm very happy with my purchase.
